My name is David.

Assuming the computer is running a version of the Windows operating system, next perform a system restore which may fix the issue. To do this click the Windows button in task bar, then type System Restore in the Search box and press Enter. Click Next and then click a restore point dated prior to when the issue first occurred and click Next. Confirm the System Restore and the restore will be applied and the computer will reboot. Then retest to see if the issue is resolved.
Note that System Restore is reversible and does not impact your personal files.

Please let me know the result.

Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today.

Sorry to hear that you’re having trouble with this but I’ll do my best to help you out.

My apologies, Gene, it appears your question was mistakenly posted/answered in the computer category rather than tv. I'm an experienced tv tech and can help you with this, if you still need assistance.

Would you please tell me if you are still getting sound from the tv or if it cuts out too?
If you bring up the toshiba menu screens, do they display consistently, or are they flickering also?
What about any other input/source, like dvd, games, or apps?
